High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Soshanguve is a township

was established in 1974 on land scheduled to be incorporated into a
bantustan bordering on Mabopane in Bophuthatswana, to Sotho,
Shangaan, Nguni and Venda people (thus the name) who were resettled
from Atteridgeville and Mamelodi. It later became part of the City
of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality, and was the scene of riots
related to poor service delivery in January 2006. It was also home
to Smangaliso Mkhatshwa the Catholic Priest who was banished from
Transkei by the apartheid regime until he later became a member of
the first post-apartheid parliament (1994) and then mayor of
Tshwane. Other well known anti-apartheid actvist are Mpho Walter
Molema, Thabo Makola, Tamati Matlala and Steven Makena, these were
killed during 1985-1986 Struggle and thereafter the State of
Emergency was declared by the apartheid Government under PW Botha.
